Abstract

Abstract Coeliac disease is an autoimmune enteropathy triggered by the ingestion of gluten in susceptible individuals. The clinical presentation of coeliac disease is variable and several extra-intestinal manifestations, as well as an association with autoimmune diseases, have been described. In particular, there are many links between liver disease and coeliac disease. Here we report the case of a young Caucasian woman with acute liver failure, selected as a possible candidate for liver transplantation. Investigation of the patient led to the diagnosis of coeliac disease. A gluten-free diet led to the reversal of the severe liver failure, without the necessity for any surgical or medical treatment.
